United Nations Security Council

Yemen Crisis

The role of the United Nations Security Council is to maintain international peace and security. With about 21 million people in need of humanitarian assistance, including more than 11 million children, Yemen is facing the world's largest humanitarian disaster, fighting an epidemic, a pandemic, famine and a war at the same time. Delegates in this committee will discuss the cause and consequences of breaking international peace and security, how it as well as other countries that have faced/are currently facing humanitarian breaches.

This committee is taking place online via Zoom. It is designed specifically for intermediate and experienced delegates. Position papers, although strongly recommended, are not required. However, they are mandatory for delegates wishing to be considered for awards. The deadline for position papers is November 5th, 2021 at 23:59 PST. More information about position papers can be found under 'resources'.  If you have any questions regarding this committee or want to send position papers, please contact Lorig Korajian, our USG of Committees at committees@abbymun.com.

Abishek S. A.  |  Chair

If one is looking to meet the Jack of all trades, then a potential person to meet would be Abishek S. A. He is an 18 year old from India who has plied his trade in various fields, with MUN, sports and studies of major interest, and has won various awards in each. He is someone who is attracted towards sports and one can have long conversations with him about sports. Being someone who is interested in statistics, Abishek is someone who tries to integrate his passion with various disciplines and this led to an interest in MUNs. Till now, Abishek has been part of more than 20 MUNs. He has been someone who always values the knowledge gained by MUN more than award and uses this knowledge to find out innovative solutions. He looks forward to meeting everyone at AbbyMUN 2021!

Maulik Agrawal  |  Assistant Director

Apart from the archetypal qualities of being responsible, dedicated and enthusiastic, Maulik is someone who will not always think in the perspective of a chair, but in the perspective of a delegate. Hailing from India, Maulik would know the topic better than any other delegate and would be in the frame of mind of being solution focused. Parallel to this, he would have an active awareness of the ‘’rivalries’’ and ‘’alliances’’ existing within the committee and accordingly act as a forward thinker. Impartiality and empowerment are other exemplary features of him. He hopes everyone at the first iteration of AbbyMUN 2021 has an amazing experience!
